Hello Tony, The zone type by default is sparse. Thus /usr and other filesystems will be inherited in read-only mode from the global zone. I suspect that all of the SMC* packages that gave errors included pre or post processing scripts that attempted to change permissions of files or directories associated with the package contents. Changing permissions on a read-only filesystem will fail and hence you get the errors that you saw. Lastly, some packages are marked for global zone only. Thus installation of global specific packages into non-global zones is expected to fail.
